    October 3, 2016 - Still holding up. Needs a good hour to decant, then opens up beautifully. One more to go.

    June 27, 2015 - Pinkish-crimson, good colour although slightly cloudy. Nose of sweet juicy mixed berries with herbs and nettles and earthiness and then red pepper on the back of the nose; strong but nice - just typical pinot. Earthy red berries - raspberry, redcurrant, cranberries - but with some blackberry too, giving way to eucalyptus and spearmint. Medium bodied texture, but a long, lingering, gentle savoury finish with some red and white pepper. Stood up brilliantly to Iranian food with some spicy potatoes.

  • Deux Chevaux Likes this wine:

    February 24, 2015 - Our last bottle -- and same as our last bottle.

    December 14, 2014 - True to form, this has good acid and dusty fruit -- and a strong similarity to many years of prior vintages of this same bottling. Our favorite new world at this price.

    November 28, 2014 - Well balanced, especially at price point.
